    CLASSISM EXPOSED BY BETSY LEONDAR-WRIGHT, ECONOMIC JUSTICE ACTIVIST, SOCIOLOGIST

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: Economic and social justice activists sensitive to differences in class cultures


    Betsy Leondar-Wright is an economic justice activist, sociologist and author, who writes on class and economic inequality. For nine years she was the Communications Director at United for a Fair Economy, and  co-authored UFE's new book The Color of Wealth: The Story Behind the U.S. Racial Wealth Divide. She is currently the Project Director and Senior Trainer at Class Action, a non-profit that raises consciousness about class and money, where she edits the blog “Classism Exposed.”  Betsy’s latest of twelve books, Missing Class: Strengthening Social Movement Groups by Seeing Class Cultures, was just published in 2014.


    Betsy says, "Often the paid organizers in low-income communities come from professional middle-class backgrounds. I worked as a community organizer for many years, and the class dynamics can be tricky..." From an interview she conducted with Dorian Warren, she quotes,"Don't do things for people, but help them speak for themselves."  Understanding the perspective, values, and goals of the people you are working with or trying to organize is so crucial that Betsy's current work focuses on helping activists to form cross-class coalitions in movements for social change


    Join our discussion on this crucial aspect of creating a more just, equitable, and inclusive future.

    Why the Civil Rights Movement will NEVER produce Equality !

    in The Bible

    As the nation finishes celebrating the 30 year old holiday of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, the civil rights movement is on the minds of many. Some hated it and more loved it. In spite of the historical significance of the movement many can rightly argue that the condition of the black and other minority groups in this country are worse than ever. WHY IS THIS? HOW CAN THIS BE? Let's explore God's word to see if it can shed some light.

    Beyond Selma: Making a Difference 50 Years Later

    in Current Events

    "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."


    "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others."


    ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


    HAPPY MLK DAY!


    So much has been spoken, written, and even sung about this great, historic American icon. Most would agree that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was THE definitive voice of change during one of the most tumultuous seasons in American history. Because of the collaborative efforts of Dr. King and many of his contemporaries at the time, The Civil Rights Act of 1964 became a reality. But that was 50 years ago. What's left of Dr. King's legacy for us to take and use to impact this current generation? Why are we still battling with racism, classism, and sexism? Are there lessons that we failed to learn in the past 50 years?


    Tune in today as we chat with Edward Perry, Psalmist, U. S. Army Veteran and Senior Pastor of Bethsalem Baptist Church in Springfield, NY. We're discussing the legacy of Dr. King and how it translates into our current social issues.
